English 11A- Final Exam Review
based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions.
Example: Coffee helps people stay awake during exams.
Unbiased, impartial
Example: All students need to take the final exam.
Most Missed!
Remember, ANYTHING with any indication of someone’s purpose, motives, or opinion makes it subjective. If I say,
“As I crawled across the finish line, my friends pushed me from behind because I was moving too slowly”
this is subjective. I don't know for sure why my friends pushed me. Maybe they were trying to help me finish!
The thing doing the action is the subject of the sentence and the thing receiving the action is the object.
Example: The professor teaches the students.
Active/Passive Voice
the thing receiving the action is the subject of the sentence and the thing doing the action is optionally included near the end of the sentence.
Example: The students are taught by the professor.
(I, me, my, we) Used mainly for personal narratives or eyewitness accounts.
Example: We boarded the train slowly.
First, Second, Third Person
(you, your)
Example: Get your notes in order before the exam.
Historical/Cultural Context:
looks at the society the characters live in and at how their culture can affect their behavior and their opportunities.

To figure it out, think about where and when each text is set.

Think about the values and attitudes that matter to these characters and about how they formed
Example: What do we know about the historical context of The Awakening?
Historical/Cultural Context
repeats a preceding keyword from an earlier phrase, clause, or sentence at the beginning of the next
Example: "Drugs don't just

their victims; they
entire families, schools, and communities."
Rhetorical Devices
Making assumptions about a whole group or range of cases based on a sample that is inadequate (usually because it is atypical or too small).
Example: Men never forget the love of their mothers and seek to find a mate who has similar characteristics
Faulty Reasoning
(he, she, they, them)
Example: He wandered around until they found him.
repetition of a common name so as to designate an individual and to signify the qualities exhibited by that individual's name or title
will be
repeating the same word or words in the middle of successive sentences
Example: "We are troubled on every side,
but not
distressed; we are perplexed,
but not
in despair; persecuted,
but not
forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed..."
a seeming contradiction that points to an important truth
Example: “What a pity that youth must be wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw
Two More!
Rhetorical Question:
a question intended to get the audience thinking about the topic without revealing the author's claim. Usually used in the introduction of a persuasive/argumentative essay.
Example: “What would happen if NOBODY chose to vote?"
a repetition of grammatical structures
"Flying is fast, comfortable, and safe."
"My face is washed, my hair is combed and my teeth are brushed."
Last Two
a reference within a work to historical, literary, or cultural details from outside the work
"Don't be a
"Potato chips are my diet's
Achilles heel
Prevents a person from presenting information clearly and truthfully. Sometimes based on personal preferences or beliefs about race, politics, religion, or gender.

How can you discover the claim in a piece of writing?
How can you discover the author's purpose in a piece of writing?
How can you discover the author's main idea in a piece of writing?
How can you discover the author's tone in a piece of writing?
What are the different ways to support a claim?

(Facts/statistics, personal anecdotes, logical reasoning, religious doctrine)
How can you discover the meaning of a word you don’t know, or a word that has multiple definitions?
Don't Forget!
I provide a cheat sheet for you to use WHILE taking the final exam!

Before We Begin
Take out a piece of paper, or pull up a document on your computer to take notes. USE THESE NOTES WHILE YOU TAKE THE FINAL EXAM!
Diana is writing a paper for social studies class. She wants to point out the rhetorical devices some feminists used in their arguments for the right to vote. How should she identify the rhetorical devices used in the following line from the selection? “The suffrage draws the woman out of her purely personal relations and puts her in relations with her kind, and it broadens her intelligence.”
Answer: Diaphora
